On Monday night, several members of the Cleveland roster took Jackson up on his offer, with a group of players kneeling during the national anthem prior to the Browns’ preseason game against the New York Giants. In addition to the gathered players, which included running back Duke Johnson, safety Jabrill Peppers, wide receiver Kenny Britt, linebacker Jamie Collins, tight end Seth DeValve, wideout Ricardo Louis, defensive back Najee Murray and cornerback Jamar Taylor, some players — including rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer — stood next to their kneeling teammates while placing a hand on their shoulders.

Following the Browns’ 10-6 victory, Jackson was asked about his players’ decision to kneel, which he claimed they approached him with prior to the game.

“As I said two days ago, we respect our players. We respect the flag. Those guys came to me before they ever made a decision to do it,” Jackson said. “That is the way we feel about it, and we have talked about this. I said at some point in time, they may [protest], and they have. I won’t know about the next game until it happens. But again, this was tonight and we will move on from there.”
